Life Lessons I have learned from Crossfit

I recently had the opportunity to present to a group of my employees on a personal development topic of my choice.   This is the part of my job that I really enjoy, mostly because I get a lot out of putting what I have doing on paper and really trying to reflect on it.    These presentations also give me a chance to let people know more about me and my family.  I always include a slide of photos of my wife and kids so they can see what we do outside of work. 

Most of my employees know I do Crossfit,  I think that is great, but I also worry that it shapes a perception of me that is limiting.  So in this presentation I wanted to share with them that for me Crossfit isnt just about getting fit.  There has been a huge opportunity for me to learn a lot more.
